June 6, 1944, D-Day, Operation Overlord | Colorized WW2

  • Опубліковано 22 вер 2023
  • "June 6, 1944, the light of dawn" tells the story of Operation Overlord, which is to date the largest military operation that man has ever conceived. From the summer of 1941 until June 6, 1944. The landing is told like a historical drama with its intrigues, its twists and its thousands of young men who will die there. Entirely produced with cropped and colorized archives, this film by Jean-Christophe Rosé was broadcast on France Télévisions as part of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in June 2014. It is one of the best audiences for a history documentary.

    Both of my grandfathers fought the Germans in WWII. I know that they took part in the fighting in France, though one of them told me he arrived after the storming of Omaha was over. He said he was glad he missed that one. Nonetheless he saw his fair share of horrors over there and fought in the battles depicted involving Patton's army. He helped liberate a concentration camp as well. After the war was over he came back and worked two jobs to support a family. My other grandfather had succumb to ptsd and alcoholism and spent the rest of his life homeless shortly after having children. I never got to hear his story. I am very grateful to both them for the sacrifices they made. They don't call them the greatest generation for nothing.

    This is easily one of the best composed documentaries about WWII that I've found on UAclips. It's a shame you haven't made a whole series of them about different parts of the war with such rich detail and good narration. The blurring of dead bodies was absolutely pointless and absurd, but I'm guessing this is because of UAclips's usually idiotic policies about appropriate content.

      I wonder the cost in colorizing these films, doing the research, and preparing the documentary. It may not be UAclips's stupid policies about appropriate content, but it could also be from the aforementioned hurdles. BRAVO to this documentary.

    I’m only 1:28 in and already love this. Thank you for the excellent quality of subtitles! The colorization creates a space for deeper emotional connection to the subject, the history of the subject. I’m already crying, at the faces of the soldiers in the duckboats and the ones who made it through the beach. The stillness of their faces, the stare, the exhausted slump. Those men had just experienced a terrible and terrifying day full of sensory overload and biological stress and fear, seen their fellows drowning, getting blown to pieces or shot through. Their bodies and minds had just gone through something as shocking to getting thrown off an incredibly high cliff- falling and falling and falling, not knowing when you’ll see the ground and your end; or if there’s a miracle that there’s anything that’ll break your fall. Hours and hours of intense biochemical activity, grinding, booming, smells of smoke and dust and burning, thunking of the boat doors dropping, the zip-ping of bullets, sweat, blood, pieces of humans, sand everywhere in everything, all with the very large chance that you’ll be dead in minutes, that you’re running knowingly toward death. But also with the big hope that you’ll get through. Generally, I mean. Not everyone thinks or feels the same ways. So, thank you for bringing this to us all! I’m sure it helps people in a lot of ways.

    I remember in another documentary where a Canadian soldier was asked how he felt at the end of June 6 (it was his first day of combat as well), and he responded that when things settled down during the night the realities of what had just transpired hit him like a freight train all at once and caused him to break down. The documentary did a credits for the veterans interviewed at the end and for him it it mentioned that he fought all the way to Germany's surrender, but his three closest friends in his unit were all killed before that.

      @Bill Clarke Unfortunately no it was on TV about maybe 6 years back. It was jointly released with ones about WW1 and the Korean War and I think they were part of the same series. If thats the case its an older series too because the WW1 one had interviews with vets from that war too.
      If it helps the Korean War one mentions at the end that one of the men interviewed died before the documentary's release, so if you find that one it should be easy to find the other two.

    This footage is absolutely incredible. I always feel like there isn't a LOT of footage from this incredible and violent conflict, but there's a lot more than I would expect. So interesting to see all of this, looking into the faces of men who are all dead now, either via the war or after. But every face in this has a unique story to tell. No matter what, their bravery and sacrifice will never be forgotten, and they will forever be heroes. My grandpa served from 1942-46 and was a medic in the Navy during the end of the island hopping campaign in late 44 ans 45. I have his journal where he mentions all of the stories he told me and the end of the war via atomic bomb. Anyways, thank you to all the men who have served in this war for freedom, as well as any war for freedom. You will always be remembered by your vigor, if not by your name.

    I'm a ww2 buff and to this day years after first being interested in all of this, i can NOT begin to even imagine what life was like during those times. The pure dark horror that surrounded you each and everyday is almost hard to believe actually happened. The millions of people killed, murdered. etc. These brave men and women had passion and desire for their own country more than i think anyone or any group could today. Looking at the massive amounts of ships, tanks, soldiers etc etc that came together to fight off the atrocities, the manufacturing might the people had. All of that is just a pipe dream in todays society. I had a ww2 vet in my family and all the times i was around him when he was alive he would never talk about it. But you could tell he never stopped thinking about what he did or went through. You can physically see the pain and anguish in their eyes it is so sad.

    I've been looking for a ww2 documentary that had more details about the planning and actual landing on Normandy and I think I finally found it. Thanks for the almost 2 hour video that felt like a 20 minute video that had my eyes glued to every movement on screen. Gaulle Walked around like he had battled hard and took France like it was his, but i did not see him do much.

    I’ve been enthralled with ww2 ever since my great grandfather told me his stories when i was around 7 yrs old. I’ve never even seen most of this footage which is surprising i thought I’d watched it all, this is such a well done documentary. For some reason no one else has gone this in depth on D-day and subsequent missions after landing.
    For anyone interested, i just read a 2 part book called “D-day through german eyes” it was really interesting to hear their first hand accounts of their experiences as a defender as opposed to the allied side. I definitely noticed some of the things they were talking about in the books and it gave me some insight into why that was the case.
    One thing i would like to critique though… why do we have to blur the bodies? I think we all know what we’re getting into with a ww2 documentary full of original footage. Alot of people died… we know that but I don’t think it should be blurred out like that. Out of respect for those men and for us as well. This is most likely a nonsense youtube rule because i sometimes see videos with the swaztika blurred out. Not very smart imo. History is bound to repeat itself if we forget how horrid this actually was.

    🙌🌍💪 It's incredible to reflect on the magnitude of the war effort during D-Day and Operation Overlord. The scale of preparation, coordination, and sacrifice is truly awe-inspiring. Watching these colorized videos brings a sense of reality to the events that unfolded on that historic day. Contemplating the potential outcomes if the operation had failed adds a profound perspective on the course of history. We owe immense gratitude to the brave men and women who fought and played a pivotal role in shaping the world we live in today.

    My father, due to being in the Air Force in the early 1950s was sent to Germany. He and some of his pals went to see Auschwitz. He was taken aback by actually seeing and experiencing that death camp. He said when they went to see the "ovens", you could stand in one spot and feel warm, but when they stepped over to another spot, they suddenly would feel a cold chill until they stepped away. He never forgot, or lost his slides, about what he saw at Auschwitz. The pictures we saw from those slides he snapped as he toured the camp gave us girls a clear and unmistakable impression of what death camps were like.

    J`ai été très touchée par ce documentaire historique et par tous ces films qui ont été prix par ces caméramans qui voulaient nous faire voir comment tous ces soldats n`ont jamais abandonné pour que la liberté soit le prix de leur courage. Toutes ces prises de vue authentiques et très déchirantes à la fois nous permettent de revivre ce grand évènement historique de l`humanité. Sans ces soldats provenant de divers pays, nous ne serions pas là où nous nous trouvons actuellement. Je ne leur offre non seulement ma reconnaissance mais aussi un honneur digne de leurs actes.
    Merci du fond de mon coeur.

    A wonderful documentary full of minute detail. I'm especially glad that the heroism of the cameramen was acknowledged. Although I enjoy the documentary style that has been created with this, especially the colorization and inclusion of so much detail, I dislike the fact that you are forced to blur anything someone decided might be offensive. I'm very sorry that UAclips feels it necessary to have the horror of war blurred, as if that somehow makes the display of the inevitable result of war not present.
    Anyways, thanks again.

    Both of my grandfathers fought in the Pacific. Sadly I was too young to understand how time is limited. It's impossible to wrap my head around the amount of total destruction we can ship overnight to anywhere in the world. Today when we watch movies it seems so crazy and far-fetched when they show anti-aircraft fire and the like. Then you watch the actual recordings of it, and the movies had to tame it down to make it more believable. Watching the actual footage after the movie Pacific, my jaw was on the floor!!!

Merci à tous ces jeunes gens de France, du Sénégal, du Maroc, de l'Algérie, de Tunisie, du Sud-Est asiatique, des USA, de Grande Bretagne, du Canada, de Pologne, d'Inde, d'Australie, de Nouvelle Zélande, et je suis sûr que j'en oublie (milles excuses) qui ont oeuvré à libérer le territoire national métropolitain. Dieu vous bénisse tous.
    Thanks for this sharing. A wonderful documentary that close the gap between me and the father of my father (who died some 20 years ago) who fought in Resistance in Lille area. Thanks to all those young brave men from France, Senegal, Marocco, Algeria, Tunisia, South East Asia, USA, Great Britain, Canada, Poland, India, Australia, New-Zeland, and I'm sure I forgot to name some (please forgive me) who fought to free our national mainland territory. God bless you all.

    Despite knowing the dark & gruesome side of the war, it’s just refreshing when a documentary like this makes us view the main goal. The sheer perseverance of an army & its troops to win the battle, seeing each section play a role in their part, few paying with mixed emotion priceles memories & traumatizing experiences & most paying with their life. Idk where I’m headed with this but I’m speechless.

    Omaha Beach almost led to calling off the landings :it was a frightening and tragic reminder of infantry landing without enough armour. Most of the Sherman Duplex Drive amphibious tanks
    were launched too far out where they sank with additional tragic loss of life. The bravery of all US troops in this particular landing defies belief and is brilliantly brought back to us in 'Saving Private Ryan' starring Tom Hanks and probably one of the most important WW2 movies ever made.(Nicholas)

      I wonder how the ppl from Eastern Europe felt when thinking of such "freedoms". Most of them were free before all of that, nor did start or commit the 2nd WW atrocities. Yet, after these events concluded, found themselves in a totally different situation. Their right to vote freely was stolen, the historical/opposing political parties were dismantled, their history books were rewritten, great minds, popular literature/ppl figures were either exiled (if internationally acclaimed) , assassinated, arrested and sent to torture dungeons (hard to call those prisons), or send into forced labour (slavery), with many never heard from again. A faith which everyone could have. This in addition to the terror, starvation etc. For more than 40 years. What a can of worms...

      @MrRit Напомнить кто с самого начала войны до конца не сопротивлялся Немцам? И это были далеко не Советы. И ничего тут пиздеть, первые высадки в Европу ещё были за 2,5 года до окончания войны. Все вкладывали в эту войну все свои силы.

    Assisti muitos filmes de guerra... tinha na TV a série Combate, assim como, os filmes russos de Guerra, a resistência russa em não permitir o avanço das tropas alemãs, desde atirador de elite, tanques, enfim... Do lado do Pacífico, as batalhas do EUA contra japoneses nas ilhas tomadas pelos japoneses.
    O que chamou a atenção neste filme, é a presença dos principais personagens da 2° Guerra, desde o encontro dos 3 líderes para começar o planejamento do dia D, uma operação gigantesca para acabar com a guerra. Outro fator, este é um documentário com filmes feitos por cinegrafistas que estiveram lá no fronte, mostrando a realidade da guerra.
    Um filme fantástico que mostra o empenho dos aliados em tomar a França até tomar Paris. Todas as pessoas precisam desta informação direta dos fatos. Na minha opinião, alemães não mereciam ser prisioneiros de guerra por todo mal que causaram, aliás, toda a Alemanha e seu povo, deveriam ser dizimados da face deste planeta. Não, não por vingança, mas, por justiça !!!

    In my younger years I was a huge absorber of WWII history. I’d pour over every book I could in the libraries, and truly found that time fascinating, and still do.
    As I grew up and fell into other things, I didn’t spend as much time enveloping myself in the stories of yesteryear, at least as deep as I had before.
    This video popped up in my feed, and I’m overcome with such a feeling, like a longing I wasn’t aware of experiencing, washing away for having stumbled into this.
    In short - thanks, sincerely.

    Excelente documental! muy triste las guerras y que mostrousidad la cantidad de armamentos y fuerza militar que se utilizó y la cantidad de personas que murieron , Un dato que me llamó mucho la atención fue la cantidad de violaciones que hubo por parte de soldados de EE.UU a mujeres francesas luego de expulsar a los alemanes de Normandia, no recuerdo exactamente el número de denuncias (unas 1 mil por ahí que se hizo) pero se cree que fueron mas de 13 mil mujeres que sufrieron violaciones abusos y violencia , hubo juicos por parte de tribunales militares a los soldados (que los ahorcaron) y en su mayoría eran gente afroamericana y a los blancos les daban un castigo menor que la muerte (un notable racismo).

    I'm Dutch and work as a chauffeur in Belgium, North of France and Luxemburg. My mothers childhood house (close by the Grebbeberg in Netherlands) still had grenade shells remnants visible in the walls. My fathers family came by boat from the Dutch Indies, after horrible years with the Japanese. 2 generations later, family ties are still heavily influenced by what happened almost a century ago.
    Wether I drive for work to Northern France, West Belgium, Ardennes Belgium, Luxemburg, I will pass many war monuments, graveyards, and fields that to this day still have ammunition, bombs, etc. (also from WW1). Everywhere there are streets and bridges with names like Montgomery or Churchill.
    Even for a European guy, living in this part of the world and being confronted daily by this history.. it is hard to grip the numbers, the personal stories, the small incidents that played a huge roll in the outcome of this war, and so on.
    Words can't describe the grattitude we owe all these young guys who gave their lives so we can live in peace in Western Europe for almost 80 years now. Let us never forget.
